ISMS | VII International Symposium on Marine Sciences

VII International Symposium on Marine Sciences (ISMS 2020)

ISMS is organized biannually by the six Spanish universities offering the Bachelor of Marine Sciences (Alicante, Barcelona, Cádiz, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Católica de Valencia and Vigo universities).

 

The first edition of ISMS took place in 2007 with the goal of bringing together the full range of topics in the field of Marine Sciences. The ISMS is now a well-established meeting venue for researchers and experts, as well as an excellent opportunity for students and post-graduates to present and gain exposure about the results and findings of their bachelor’s and master’s projects.

 

ISMS 2020 involves a world-class group of keynote speakers at plenary sessions and actively seeks for extensive international participation.

 

Transdisciplinary sessions will be given priority, together with the presence of Citizen Science, in order to strengthen the connections between different disciplines and between science and society.
